ski holidays in canada

The skiing in Canada is similar to the country - massive, scenic and uncrowded. Most of Canada's resorts are located in unspoilt areas allowing you to enjoy the vast empty spaces, low skier density and beautiful scenery like the National Parks of Jasper and Banff.

The range of resorts you are spoilt for choice, from cosmopolitan, world Olympian class Whistler to the unique cultural cachet of French Canada Tremblant in Quebec or the quaint mining town of Fernie. Canada offers unparalleled skiing for beginners and intermediates together with an abundance of challenging skiing in patrolled areas that would be classified off piste in Europe.

Canada also has the most extensive heli-skiing in the world, notably within the stunning wilderness of interior British Columbia.

The northern latitudes of Canada ensure a long ski season and copious amount of snow, the surprising bonus, especially in the Rocky Mountain resorts and in British Columbia is often long sunny days in glorious open bowl terrain.

A large variety of accommodation is available across resorts from award winning properties to Rocky Mountain lodges all offering friendly Canadian enchantment.

There is no need for the fun to stop once your skis have been returned to the ski valet. Most resorts offer extensive snow based activities that can include snowmobile trips, snow shoeing, Nordic skiing, dog-sledding, tubing, zip line and of course there is always the hot tub for a relaxing treat post skiing.

Departing the UK a choice of airlines are available to the key Canadian gateways of Montreal, Calgary & Vancouver all offering daily direct departures.

Accessibility to many Canadian ski resorts are served by these key gateways equating to just a two hour road transfer to many resorts.

Canadian resorts are unpretentious with welcoming Canadian hospitality, many resorts provide complimentary ski hosting ensuring you experience the resort and the mountain to its full potential.
